re: 2 flukes from a possible all time dynasty

quote:

I get pissed at Miles often, but I REFUSE to blame Miles for losing a Fixed Game.

I hate blaming the refs, but that is the only game I ever thought a team a root for in any sport truly lost because of bad officiating.

Bama's big bit of luck is this: easier schedules while LSU, their biggest rival for the division, plays the statistically hardest schedule possible. That, and the collapse of the Tennessee program.

Of the top 6 teams in the SEC, LSU has played 4. Bama played 2. Both went 500, but one is in the title game.

Last year, LSU played 4 of the top 6. Bama played 3. And despite not making the SECCG, got to go to the BCSCG, while LSU has to play a 5th of the top 6.

That's staggering good fortune.

I won't comment further, but I'm glad to see there are fans here with two eyes and a brain.

And I get ripped when I make this point often.

People call Miles "lucky", while Saban is clearly the luckiest of them all.....with a HUGE slice of free publicity from the network that controls the sport.
